A Home Equity Loan: Is It Right For You?
Home equity loans can be great financial tools that not only facilitate home improvements but also contribute toward building wealth. Proper use is essential, however. Just as a knife is helpful when cutting open a box, it can also hurt you if itís used carelessly. Through a combination of proper planning, an evaluation of current markets, and the guidance of a mortgage professional, you should be able to determine the best use of the options available to you.

Ensure Your Childrenís Future Happiness and Success
We all want the best for our children. In terms of the life path a child will choose, this sentiment has two meanings for the parent. The first has to do with the childís happiness and their ability to carve out a niche in a field that truly makes them happy. The second addresses the childís future financial stability and whether theyíll make choices as teens and young adults that will set them up for a relatively comfortable future. These two ideas donít always go together.

How Much Money Do We Need for Retirement?
Like it or not, when it comes to planning our retirement, today we are going to have to rely primarily on ourselves. Unless you work in the public sector, pensions are fast becoming a thing of the past. Even profitable corporations like IBM and Verizon are cutting back on their pension plans. Can you count on Social Security? Unfortunately, no. We are living longer and retiring in greater numbers than when the retirement age was set in the 1930s.

Build Relationships With Your Clients
ďItís not personal, itís just business.Ē This attitude might work if youíre Tony Soprano. For just about everyone else, however, getting personal is a way to take your business to the next level. For example, if your dry cleaner greets you by name and knows you donít take starch in your shirts, would you go elsewhere just to save a quarter?
